|Greater Yellowlegs in flight|
These turned out to be Greater Yellowlegs. There was six or seven of them, spread out over the pond. They didn't stay still very long. In fact, I was lucky to get shots of two of them together in any one place. The ones shown directly below were to the right of my position.

|Greater yellowlegs searching for food|
These birds chose to land to the left of me, where they foraged for food. It turns out these birds are very wary of danger. They would bob their heads and get set to take flight if I got too close. They would also immediately call an alarm at the least intrusion from any source, including gulls that landed to close to them.

|Greater yellowlegs on his own|
This Greater Yellowlegs was on the other side of the pond all by himself. I had to literally sneak up on him to get this shot.
